At Peabody Essex Museum, Bernie Krause’s symphony of the wild sounds an alarm

In a dark gallery at the Peabody Essex Museum, plump ottomans are scattered across a viewing space in front of a wall-height screen that wraps around the room on three sides. “The Great Animal Orchestra” works its audio-visual magic across seven color-coded regions — red for Algonquin Park in Ontario; blue for oceans, generally — though there’s a bleak, unifying theme to it all.
